Special Victims Unit investigators searched rocker’s home for belongings in connection to the sexual assault allegations against him.
“What I can confirm is there was a search warrant that was served this morning,” an L.A. County Sheriff’s source told Rolling Stone. “It’s confirmed it was [Manson‘s] address, his location. It was a search warrant for his belongings.”
Hard drives and other media storage units were seized among other belongings.
In February this year, Evan Rachel Wood has accused Manson of abuse. In both 2019 and 2018, actress Wood provided testimony before members of state and federal government in which she spoke of an abusive relationship with an unspecified man.
After that, at least 15 women have publicly accused Manson of sexual assault. He is currently facing three lawsuits from women who claim to have been sexually abused by him in the past, including his ex-girlfriend Ashley Morgan Smithline and “Game Of Thrones” actress Esme Bianco.
Manson later released a statement denying the abuse allegations leveled against him, writing on Instagram: “Obviously, my art and my life have long been magnets for controversy, but these recent claims about me are horrible distortions of reality. My intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners. Regardless of how — and why — others are now choosing to misrepresent the past, that is the truth.”
